AMDEA Chief Executive retires

AMDEA has announced that Chief Executive Douglas Herbison is retiring after thirteen years with the organisation (the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances).

Since joining in 2006 he has overseen expansion of AMDEA’s membership, broadened recognition of its technical expertise in developing product standards and led campaigns on key issues imperative to the appliance industry.

During Herbison’s tenure, the organisation also created its first consumer campaigns to drive awareness of the energy and water savings of high-efficiency white goods, the role of appliances in recovery of value from food waste, and most recently, with Register My Appliance, the importance of product registration for household safety.

“We appreciate the important contribution Douglas has made to AMDEA, and the white goods industry, in his career within the organisation and wish him well in his retirement,” said Teresa Arbuckle, AMDEA Chair.

Herbison’s successor has not yet been named.

AMDEA provides a voice for over sixty leading brands of large and small appliances, working alongside government, regulators, standards bodies, business and consumer advocates.
